Welcome to the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs

Acting Presidents Welcome Message
Having been a member of BAWE for over 12 years I have been charged with the privilege of taking on the role of acting President. BAWE is an organisation with a fascinating history. The members are engaged business owners from all sectors and some with international focus. The women I have met through BAWE have always been very professional and supportive in my business growth and continue to be so. My plan, with the help of the board and membership, is to organise informative and interesting events, ensure dialogue with the membership as well as social networking.
BAWE is a wonderful platform and I am delighted that I became a member of the group at a time when I was looking for likeminded business women to meet with. It is not all about business however, I have forged some long term friendships via BAWE and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead the organisation.


An Association run by Women Entrepreneurs, for Women Entrepreneurs.
